JRA History

Wild Rive

The James River Association was established in 1976 as the Lower James River Association by a group of concerned citizens living along the James River. In the mid-1990’s the name was changed to the present James River Association to reflect its involvement in conserving the entire length of the James River and the tributaries that comprise the watershed.

Today, this member-supported nonprofit organization helps people of all ages enjoy, appreciate and protect the beauty and health of the James River for future generations to enjoy.
